[inaudible] lou: don't you love it when we see in popular culture the appeal to the highest common denominator. it's inspiring, really, isn't it? no word yet on whether -- well, there is no word yet on whether president obama appreciates the support. we're sure he does. the
there is a security issue? >> apparently we withdraw non-essential personnel before, but the fbi team that is supposed to be investigating has apparently not gonna get either. lou: they are reporting that they have been there for days and they are not moving around for fear of their own safety, yet we have an ambassador with the state department that has been alerted to the security concerns without, without protection. >> this is a debacle. you cannot lose for americans and not to include somebody has messed up very badly. somebody should be held responsible. think that's one reason why the administration has planned about this. lou: the idea that this is a cover-up straight forward questions about the murder of a mess of stevenson got three other americans including the two former u.s. navy seals still lusted up and address the american people on what in the world is going on. now they're saying they cannot talk about it because the fbi is called up in a hotel and tripoli >> that does not cut it. lou: this is outrageous. >> there are only two explanations, one is they're lying and covering up, but t
. there is an ongoing investigation. the fbi is investigating, and that investigation will follow the facts wherever they lead. gerri: ambassador, what's that response tell you? >> well, i think they were in denial in the first place. the notion they turned up with rocket propelled grenades and mortars in a spontaneous demonstration, september 11th of all dates, and seemed to have targeted and killed the american ambassador, so responsible for the liberation of libya, i think is -- was very clearly deliberate, and whether they were angry about the video. i think probably not so much there because most people there are pro-american, but elsewhere, yes, they are angry about the video, but focusing on the video is bad in a number of respects. there's no way you can shut down outrageous speech in the country of the united states, it's going to happen, but if the responsibility of responsible officials in egypt and other countries throughout the world to take actions to protect embassies and they are the ones who are responsible, and the extremists sure -- stirring up the crowds are responsible. talking
learn from bret baier and his reporting as of right now there hasn't been a single fbi agent on the ground in benghazi. we're all looking toward that investigation because that's what we're told from the administration will provide more answers, the fbi investigation, if no one is on the ground what are we to make of that? >> i think you make a couple of things. why is anybody not on the ground? is it too dangerous for the fbi to go there? secondly if the administration says, hold your horses wait until we got full investigation and we find out there is no investigation, again, it is that drip, drip, drip. what did they know? when did they know it? why are they trying to cover it up and what is going on? it wasn't so unsafe in benghazi a cnn reporter went there several days ago and got the ambassador's personal diary. maybe somebody is there but not the united states fbi. jenna: we'll watch the continuing to develop story. kt, thanks for your insights. well have much more on the controversy over the attack on the u.s. consulate in libya. top senators on the senate foreign rel

, and the fbi is investigating a possible al qaeda link, and an issue that secretary of state hillary clinton discussed total. meanwhile, ann curry set down with the president of libya to discuss the situation. >> reporter: would you call the attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi an act of terrorism? >> i have no doubt about that. and it is a pre-planned act of terrorism directed against american citizens. >> reporter: you're confirming that rpgs were used in the original attack? >> mortars -- >> reporter: they were used in the attack? >> yes. >> reporter: and do you know how many mortars were used? >> about 500. >> reporter: and you were saying they're fired with such accuracy that this could not have been done by somebody who didn't have experience? >> experience and knew what he was doing. >> reporter: and this is what is helping to convince you that this was a pre-planned attack, not a reaction to a controversial movie? >> yes, i have no doubt about this. >> reporter: do you think the movie had anything to do with this attack on the consulate? >> not on this attack, not on this attack,
the attack. he said, get the fbi director on the phone. fortunately the instructions had been given to get the fbi director on the phone before he walked in, so we could say, he is right here, mr. president. he then talked to the vice president and talked to governor pataki and other leaders. he worked on remarks for the american people that he delivered before an audience of 600 people. he thought he was there talking about leaving no child left behind and education and said he was going back to washington, d.c. i knew he wasn't going back to washington ton d.c. he and i had quite an argument because he wanted to go back toe washington. see set service and pilot of the air force one didn't want to go back until we knew what happened. we went to louisiana. landed there. took some people off air force one. we flew to omaha, nebraska, strategic air command center and went down into a deep bunker. the whole time the president was deliberate, decisive, strong leader. he did not want to be disruptive to the responsibilities that were being met by the people getting planes safely on the ground a
an fbi agent, i get to look at all of that. i come to a different conclusion. they are only moderately confident that it was a spontaneous event because there are huge gaps in what we know. >> shannon: it was all about u.s. foreign policy on fox news sunday. i sat down with chris wallace for more on his interviews with dr. susan rice and the house intelligence chair, mike rogers. chris, it is all about what happened in foreign pm's this week. you had the ambassador to the u.n., dr. susan rice, to talk about the administration's position on what may have sparked what we saw play out in the middle-east. >> it is intk because jay carney, the white house spokesman said it on friday and ambassador rice backed it up, reinforced it, doubled down on sunday. they say that all of this unrest across the middle-east is all about that video that came out, this obscure video that insults the prophet muhammad, they say it has nothing to do with anti-american feelings and u.s. policies. there are an awful lot of people who question that, but that's the position of the administration. >> shannon: you t
of this on friday by saying, well, there is an fbi investigation going on. we are not going to comment on it any further. that lasted all the way until sunday, but i think really reporters -- lou: when susan rice major appearance. >> right. reporters have an obligation to find out what went on here. we have embassies all over the region. we have tens of thousands of private citizens who are in jeopardy. we need to know what the facts are. lou: there is something going on here that is peculiar, unique, unprecedented. and that is a white house that seems to be focusing primarily on representing the united states and facts abroad that are not facts at all and, in fact, are tortured by the witnesses in been gauzy by intelligence sources. there is not a single source as far as i know that corroborates what the united nations ambassador is telling the american people and what a white house is telling the american people. >> also, it is all because of this silly movie on youtube which is hardly a movie. a bunch of guys who have glue around years and this tells pretending. lou: let me corroboree what yo
would like to hear a strong rebuttal to this. yesterday the senate committee heard from the fbi director and the director of counterintelligence, counterterrorism. they both basically said this problem is getting much worse than it has in the past. international terrorism and even home grown terrorism. the president ever from the very beginning is crumbling before our very eyes. i would hope that mr. romney would see this as an opportunity to come out very strongly and say, look, look at what has happened in egypt, libya, syria, iran, of course, is taking over iraq. you are having problems and saudia arabia, pakistan, afghanistan seems to be going in the wrong direction. there is not a place in that entire area where we can call terribly friendly at this point and quite frankly could explode. lou: there are a host of questions, obviously, that pertain to the days we are living through here. ambassador, very quickly, the idea that the hundred governor romney has not responded with great sharp focus, he is disappointing to many. there seems to as well be, as i brought up, with ed henry at
that he was on an al-qaeda hit list. state department spokesman the f.b.i. is investigating. however, a former u.s. ambassador told fox news megyn kelly the contents may expose, quote a failing in the overall approach to the region. >> i'm sure if he believed that security was a problem, he would have informed the state department's bureau. they would have made a threat assessment and taken necessary steps. fact that he and three americans were killed shows there was massive failure of security. >> at first cnn cited one source an aide to secretary clinton, they. they gave a furious statement by failing assurances reportedly gave to his family to return the journal. cnn executives dispute. that now enter michael hastings best known for having written the story for rolling stone a few years back that resulted in the resignation of stanley mcchrystal. he e-mailed, quote, why does the state department search the consulate and find the diary first. what other potential valuable intelligence was left behind? was any classified or top secret material also left? on classified material the a
,000 with a promise for $65,000 more in the developer. the developer was actually working for the fbi. meanwhile, mitt romney is causing a stir tonight over comments made regarding obamacare. in an interview over the weekend he said that there parts of the law that he will keep if he becomes president. >> i'm not getting rid of all health care reform. there are a number of things that i like in health care reform that i will put in place. one is making sure that pre-existing conditions can get coverage and allow the marketplace to get policies that covers their families up to whatever age they might like. gerri: democrats are beating on us, doctor, it's great to see you again on the show. you are actually here in person and i love that. would he make of romney's comments? >> he is making honest statements. he has come out and is telling people what he thinks. i think that his comments are okay and i agree with them. there parts of the act that are good and should be. >> well, i think the ability to keep your insurance until the age of 26 will help a lot of people out. i also think the ability to addre
they work for government. one is working for security, fbi. another in the da's office. they make about $250,000 as a couple after they pay for the kids and the food and whatever they need just to get by, they don't have a lot of money left over. where does this number, $250,000 for a couple, come from? do you really think $200,000 for an individual, that person should be paying higher taxes in this economy right now? is that the number? >> look, i think we need to price our product. the things we have government buy, whether it's defending our country abroad, building roads at home, providing education, providing law enforcement, cia to keep us safe, nih, whatever it is -- >> you're saying yes. >> we need to make a determination. do we want it? if we don't want it, then we don't have to pay for it. if we want it, yes, we need to pay for it. who's going to pay for it? those people who have resources to help pay the bills of our country. we made decisions. we're buying a lot. the republicans, frankly, in my view, have not cut spending under ronald reagan or under george bush i or george bush
was caught taking bribes as part of an fbi sting. they were offering their condolences to the family of a motorcycle patrolman killed on sunday. the 55-year-old offer was sit by preparing to shot the high when he was hit. the white house says the president's thoughts and prayers with with that officers family. >>> doctors take a tulane university player who broke his spine during a head-to-head tackle on saturday is in stable condition today. but that is too early to tell if he's paralyzed or not. devin walker underwent three hours of surgery to stabilize his spine. he was hurt during saturday's home dame against tulsa. >>> a pollster for the romney camp referred to the president post-convention bounce. you heard peter alexander refer to it. they call it had it a sugar high and said, quote, don't get all worked up about the latest polling. you can tell from quotes who is ahead in the race. that's interesting. do you agree? it's our "news nation" gut check, and you can join the "news nation" on facebook. we're at facebook.com/newsnation. hmm, it says here that cheerios helps lower cho
plan, he is talking about literally cutting off fbi, food safety, things that effect the middle class. that's why they don't want to go into the issues. it effects the middle class voter they need to win the election. >> thank you both so much. >>> next, we go to the white house on this fast moving friday. stay with us. >> what he should have been talking about seems to me is bigger issue of foreign policy. i'm not sure the day we found out the american ambassador, first american ambassador to be killed since 1979 in action was the right time to do it. >> i had no problem with it, but we differ there. does your phone give you all day battery life ? droid does. and does it launch apps by voice while learning your voice ? launch cab4me. droid does. keep left at the fork. does it do turn-by-turn navigation ? droid does. with verizon, america's largest 4g lte network, and motorola, droid does. get $100 off select motorola 4g lte smartphones like the droid razr. to provide a better benefits package... oahhh! [ male announcer ] it made a big splash with the employees. [ duck yelling ] [ mal
right in front of itself. what they are trying to do is hide behind the fact of an fbi investigation that's pending in libya. which i find ridiculous. the idea that the administration has returned to terrorism as a criminal law matter rather than as a continuing war is extraordinarily disturbing. >> i am even surprised at the discussion. why in the world did anyone need a warning? i've traveled to some of the dangerous places around the country. i haven't been to libya, but i would suspect that place would look pretty dangerous to me. they have a grand new government, lots of factions, you have people fighting each other, fighting the old administration. why would you even need a warning that we really have to have lots of security for our people? >> we were obviously caught by surprise both in libya and in egypt. different situations but caught by surprise in both cases which means only one of two things. either there's a massive intelligence failure not to see this coming, or the administration believes that things were so benign, that the environment was so calm they didn't have t
interagency task force to include more federal partners including the fbi, the intelligence community is devoting more resources to identifying trafficking networks, we've strengthened protections that foreign born workers know their rights and most of all we're going after the traffickers. new anti-trafficking teams are dismantling their networks. last year we charged a record number of these predators with human trafficking. we're putting them where they belong, behind bars. but -- [ applause ] but with more than 20 million victims of human trafficking around the world, think about that, more than 20 million, we've got a lot more to do. that's why earlier this year i directed my administration to increase our efforts and today i can announce a series of additional steps that we're going to take. first we're going to do more to spot it and stop it. we'll prepare a new assessment of human trafficking in the united states so we better understand the scope and scale of the problem. we'll strengthen training so investigators and law enforcement are even better equipped to take action. an
-- security is so bad that the fbi won't even even go in now to investigate the case. and i want to stay with this. what about this coverup? >> it is a coverup. >> susan rice goes out and basically lies to the american people on a number of news shows, we now know that the administration knew right away that this was a pre-planned al qaeda terrorist operation and they lied and now they're covering up the lie. >> within 24 hours they knew it was an al qaeda operation. >> so that's why they don't want obama loose on this foreign policy. >> obama never takes -- he never says i'm to blame. it's always george bush is to blame, somebody else is to blame. he's never to blame. he is to blame. it's on his watch. >> go ahead, mark. >> the one thing that i have to say in defense of the administration here, and i know the security situation in the north africa quite well because of my own experience. it was confusing in the beginning. but it's no excuse if going out there and trotting out some alibi that it was not a terrorist attack. so i agree with that. but the one thing i want to say is the pres
